    8 things I would like to thank the Quilting Board for .....

    Inspiration to try new things - I never have a shortage of new ideas thanks to all of you.

    1) For introducing me to spray basting!
    2) For letting me know that about a single hole (stitch) plate for my sewing machine - piecing is so much easier now.
    3) That I do not have to iron my binding before sewing it on
    4) Tutorials - I have used about 4 of them!
    5) Pictures - I am a visual learner and I love having my morning coffee and looking at all our creations
    6) The ability to buy and sell - why not support our sister/fella quilters
    7) Encouragement and recognition that my personal quilting is not too shabby
    8) The ability to help others when they are in need of a block or two, or to know where to find something

    It was Canadian Thanksgiving yesterday and I am thankful for all of you!

    Wow, great minds think alike! I was working on a quilt this morning that was never meant to be a quilt. I used all the techniques and ideas I learned on QB to put it together. I was thinking of posting pictures when I was done and listing all the ideas and techniques I learned from all of you that went into making this quilt. Thank you for your post, and happy Thanksgiving from a Canadian living in the US.

    I have been reading about this one but just haven't taken the bull by the horns to try it. Do you like it?

    How nice of you to take the time to say "thank you." I agree. I have learned so many things, including an appreciation for kindness.

    Where's the "like" button? I agree with all the things that you all have said.

    My additions to this list:
    making mug rugs and other small projects to gain experience
    advice available when I need it
    all the quilting info that's available here or on other websites
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Yes, very much so, don't think I will ever go back to spray basting again. I first used the Elmers Clear School Glue, it was a little thin and left 'trails'. The I purchased a larger bottle of Elmers White School Glue, and I like this one so much better....I hold the bottle high and barely squeeze the bottle, I find I like a very thin drizzle, but a fairly good amount of drizzle. Then you just smooth down your fabric and wait for it to dry. Once both sides are sandwiched I personally allow the entire quilt to dry over night. Then I free motion quilt to my hearts content. No gummie needles. and when I am all done with the binding I throw the whole thing in the washer.....It comes out beautiful

    Such simple little things to say but mean so much. I too am thankful for this forum because it is so nice and uplifting to read such kind words about each others work. As a new quilter I have learned so much from all of you. Thank you.

    I'm so thankful for this board for the sisterhood it brings. If one of us has a problem, everyone helps out. If someone won an award, everyone cheers them on. There's nothing like this board!!!

    I think the thing im greatful for is the friends ive made.
    Ive meet the nicest people, made somelasting bonds too.
    thru these friends, ive learned so much, and not justt quilting.
    i look forward to meeting with quilty friends and writing to you all on
    This line. I used to hear people say oh my computer friend.
    yeah, like they really exist. Well...they do. Some of you ive never met, or for that
    Matter talked to, but i write to you all the time. Some of you i talk to every once in awhile,
    Some every day. Some i see every week, some a few times a year. But...you're all my friends.
    And ones i can always go to for quilty advice. I get to go to a
    Quilt show every day when all ofyou show me your beautiful work.
    Then we have days with fab recipies.
    You're all the best. Thank you for being my friens.

    The Janome machines (don't know about other brands) have a single hole stitch plate where the needle can only be placed in the center position. This keeps the machine (and the wide feed dogs) from eating fabric when you are piecing -- especially at the beginning. You can also use a scrap of fabric to start sewing on before you start piecing (these are variously called sew-ons, sew-offs or leaders and enders.

    I, too, am thankful for the quilting board for all the reasons stated above and specifically one more. When my dear friend, Jan Rutherford's husband passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, so many of you reached out to let her know she was not alone. Such good people here.

    None of my friends quilt, do not belong to a guild but I can alway go to the quilting board to learn, for advice, to have a laugh, to see beautiful quilts, to follow informative links, to follow tutorials, to blow off steam and to make great friends and, though I've never met you personally, I feel I know you and can depend on you.

    I agree with all you listed. If I have a problem, just want to vent, or want to share something, this is the place to be. Thanks for listing.
